“The song is about having a rebellious spirit. Rock and roll means many things: rebelling, freedom and being who you are on your own terms — not following whatever’s now in vogue. Therefore, ‘Rock N Roll Is Getting Louder’ means ‘I am what I am, I won’t change that, and I stand up for things that are important to me, even if it’s not popular.'”
“The Gospel Truth” represents GILBY CLARKE’s first solo record in 15 years and will be released later this year through Golden Robot Records. The album was written and produced by GILBY CLARKE at his Los Angeles recording studio, Redrum Recording.
The album was mixed by Grammy Award winner Chris Lord-Alge and mastered by Maor Appelbaum. GILBY CLARKE recorded the album with Muddy Stardust (bass), Kenny Aronoff (drummer, JOHN MELLENCAMP, JOHN FOGERTY, CHICKENFOOT) , along with Matt Starr (guitarist, ACE FREHLEY, MR. BIG) and Chad Stewart (backing vocals, FASTER PUSSYCAT, L.A. GUNS) on backing vocals.
GILBY CARKE would further elaborate on how this album is different from his past works and the songwriting process saying:
“I don’t think it’s very different at all. I’m not trying to reinvent the wheel. I have found the music that I like as an artist and a musician. It’s important that I get better at it and try new things, but I like rock and roll, and loud guitars are good for the soul.
“I always start with a good guitar riff, then add the devil’s drumbeat. It’s good when you can put some interesting lyrics to it, too. I always try to find a new way of saying something simple. I don’t like to complicate my lyrics, but I never duplicate them either.”
